    Industrial 5G networks will mostly be discrete and isolated

    12,761 views - Posted July 8, 2020 by Dean Bubley Founder & Director - Disruptive Analysis

    A key argument cited for telcos having a central role in industrial / vertical #5G networks is "service continuity". Devices and users can connect both on-premise and in the wide area, because both are enabled by the same operator. An MNO can thus best provide on-premise connectivity as an extension...
